Indoor air comfort is affected by temperature, relative humidity, lighting, and noise. This study aimed to determine comfort index and its relationship with electrical energy consumption at Azra Hospital, Bogor. Measurement was done in rooms which represented different function or units. The temperature and RH measurement were conducted using thermometer (dry and wet bulb) and psychrometric chart. Light intensity measurement refers to SNI 16-7062-2004 about Light Instensity Measurement at Workplace whereas noise level measurement refers to KEP-48/MENLH/11/1996 about Noise Level Standard. Another related regulation is Kep. Men. Kes. RI No. 1204/MENKES/SK/X/2004 about Health Regulation of Hospital Environment.
